How to Save on Gas

For a long time I just accepted that the costs of gas were a part of life.  I never checked which gas station was cheapest; I always figured that they were pretty much all the same and who cares about a cent or two here and there? When I moved recently, just a couple of towns over (from richy-richy Avon, CT to working-class Bristol); same state, same county even, I couldn’t help but notice that gas is always .20 to .25 cents cheaper across the board.  I am still having sticker shock and…

The Price Of Your Children's Happiness

Miss K’s 2nd birthday is right around the corner (which I am finding hard to believe!) and I have been asked by at least 10 different people what kind of party we will be throwing her, are we hiring a place, getting in entertainers, having a bouncy house – I feel like I am surrounded by looks of horror when I say no, we are just going for a nice day out to the children’s museum – JUST THE FOUR OF US.  She is going to be 2 not 16, she isn’t even going to know its her birthday!…

Green on the Cheap

When I made the decision, really made the decision, to adopt a greener lifestyle, I had people say to me “I’d love to go green but I can’t afford it.”  Have you ever said that?  Thought that?  If so, I will refrain from telling you what I said in return.

The point is that if you think about it,…

Surviving Black Friday

With all of the stores giving us a sneak peak at their Black Friday ads I thought some tips to survive Black Friday were applicable today.

We’ve all seen them the shopping ninjas that walk into the stores on Black Friday, not looking at anyone or anything.  They go straight to the item or items that they need, pay and are out of the store before you can say Black Friday.  How do they do…

Adventures in Menu Planning

Recently, I was asked to think about the area in which I waste the most money. After much thought, I realized that the area of financial drain I struggle with the most isn't in buying too many shoes or buying a daily Starbucks (although I do love both new shoes and Starbucks). My area of waste is my kitchen. Specifically, my refrigerator.



I buy food I don't use, and it goes bad. Or, I don't have something planned for dinner, so I am more likely to fall into the temptation of…

Thifty Lil’ Homeschool/Therapy Room

I have been working hard to get myself organized. So far, I’ve gotten the kitchen(mostly done), the living room done, and our lil’ homeschool/therapy room. Actually the boys spend most of their day in here. We do all their therapy in this room, ALL their Legos, and of course our schooling.

Homeschooling can be very expense & so is Autism, diabetes, pacemaker, & hypothyroidism. Mix it all up, and we are constantly broke. We are constantly thinking out the box, and looking to…

Organic Gardening with Poly Hobby Mommy

I started my garden about a month ago. I am now just updating. It’s been keeping pretty tired at the end of the day.  But, I’m getting a killer tan. All my hard work is starting to pay off.  Everything is coming up so large and beautiful.

We planted: tomatoes, jalapenos, bell pepper, cucumber, yellow squash, butter nut squash, zucchini, watermelon, cantaloupe, pumpkin, cabbage, broccoli, bok choi, lettuce, cilantro, basil, rosemary,  and chives.

The boys started plants in…

Dumpster Digging Mommy for Coupons

So I never thought I would actually enjoy shoving my kids into the dumpsters. I got to admit it was rather thrilling.  They didn’t mind as much as you might think. I did a lovely job convincing them that we were on an adventure…*smiles* Oh the wonderful powers of  the Super Mommies.  We collected about 60 free coupons, a lap table with a whiteboard, and a very large double sided white board.   With the whiteboard, they range anywhere from $400 to $600.   I was beyond thrilled that I found it…

How to Make Sunshine

Today we rose to a sun that was trying it's darndest to burn through the mist that shrouds the redwoods. It'd peek through momentarily, lighting up the whole living room, and within minutes hide again beyond the mist.



Finally at ten o'clock the…

Making Contact...Again

By the end of the month, my girls look shaggy. Not shabby, mind you. Just a bit more unkempt. That one spot that always gets a tangle every.single.day. remains tangled. Hair is in their eyes. Bothering them. And unknowingly bothering me too.

And shaggy is all good. I'm into it...to a degree. But what… Continue

Washing Dishes...Again

When we moved to our new home eight months ago, I was worried. You see, our new home has no dishwasher. And I had kind of made a personal vow that I would never move to another home without a dishwasher again until all my kids had left the nest.



I love dishwashers. Matter of fact, if I had to put all my appliances in order (yes, odd, but something I've done while living without electricity in the rainforest), it would be like this:

1. Stove (Burners beat out all. Plain and…

Our Chicks are Here!

Chickens were a fleeting dream I had a few years ago.



We were living in Berkeley, California, a full-blown suburban city, when we first began our new phase of life with kids. We lived in a little flat there near the highway. My husband rode his skate board to work and I walked E-V-E-R-Y-W-H-E-R-E. (Oh do I miss those parks. There were green, grassy parks and playgrounds literally every 6 blocks there.) And my natural-outdoorsy minded self simply dreamed of a little bit of land to care… Continue

Bake Your Own Bread in an Hour!

I was given the recipe of all recipes to make super fast, easy bread, and I can’t wait to share it. This bread costs almost nothing, it’s fun to bake, and so much healthier than the store-bought bread spiked with high-fructose syrup.

Forget expensive bread machines: all you need is flour, rapid rise yeast, water, salt, olive oil, and voila — bread!

5 Practices That Help Me Save Money as a Homemaker

There are advantages to working from home, one of which is that I don't have to commute to work every day or sit through rush hour traffic just to get to my office. Since my husband and I both work from home, we're able to save on certain expenses. However, you can never save too much, right? So here's how I save, in my own little way, as a mom, a wife and a homemaker.



1. Less trips to the grocery: My contribution to the family income goes towards all our food. We used to do… Continue

Motherhood and Identity

Over the past week I've been mulling over my state of affairs. No writing. Thinking. Reflecting. Considering.
I've been thinking about my day-to-day activities and long-term plans. As a stay-at-home mom, I've got a pretty good gig. I can't get fired, I don't get performance reviews (most of the time), and I get to spend time with my kids, volunteer at school and care for my…
